    Welcome once again to the Ultimate Drabble Challenge! The first two were such great fun, we couldn't resist throwing another round! The rules are the same as last time but just in case you are new to the challenge, they are listed below.

    Your hostess this time around are BigFatty and the ever talented
    Zonoma. Updates will appear every Monday this time around. Good luck and happy writing!

    -BigFatty




    [color=darkred][b]WHAT IS A DRABBLE?[/b][/color]

    A Drabble is an extremely short work of fiction with exactly one hundred words. The purpose of the drabble is to teach brevity and test author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in an extremely confined space.

    [color=darkred][b]THE CHALLENGE[/b][/color]

    100 Drabbles in twenty weeks.

    [color=darkred][b]THE RULES[/b][/color]

    [color=darkred][b]1[/b] [/color]Each Monday we'll post 5 topics. You will have one week to write a drabble on each topic.

    [color=darkred][b]2[/b] [/color]Latecomers are always welcome, but you must start at the beginning!

    [color=darkred][b]3[/b] [/color]To keep things neat and tidy, please start your own Drabble thread in the era you are most likely to write them for. Post all five of each week's drabbles in a single post. We will create an index for our threads here in resource. Simply post a link to your thread in here when you first start it, so that I know where to find them.

    [color=darkred][b]4[/b] [/color]You can write them all in one day or spread them out throughout the week, your choice. Just be certain to have all 5 drabbles for each given week in a single post.

    [color=darkred][b]5[/b][/color] You can follow a thread through your drabbles. They can be canon characters, OCs, etc. You can use just one character, a different character a week, or a different one for each drabble.

    [color=darkred][b]6[/b][/color] You must do all the drabbles listed, in the order they are listed.

    You simply must remember one thing:

    [color=darkred]These are drabbles! [b]They must be 100 words each.[/b] No more, no less.

    I read through many of the previous drabble threads when I was still a lurker, and I'm excited to participate this time around! That said, although I planned to spend Labor Day working diligently on homework, I ended up drabbling. :D

    Week 1 features the Skywalker family (and Han as well): [link=http://boards.theforce.net/beyond_the_saga/b10477/29085437/p1/]A Kaleidoscope of Memories[/link]

    Same here! I should've been working on the summer homework I was swamped with yesterday, but I wrote drabbles instead. [face_blush]

    'Tis my first time participating in something like this ... hopefully I'm up for the task. I've seen previous drabbles and they look fun. Here's mine: [link=http://boards.theforce.net/beyond_the_saga/b10477/29087223/p1/?0]A Tapestry of Worlds[/link]. Week 1 is Luke and Mara! :D

    I think I shall take this on, something I shall regret later in the semester. Here we are with [link=http://boards.theforce.net/Message.aspx?topic=29089870&brd=10477]Studying Fanfiction: The Margins of Rocky's Notebook[/link], with the first week on post-Invincible stuff.

    I've always loved reading the responses to previous UDC's, and I think it's about time I participated.
